Carl joins World Listening Day 2019 : Listening With

Every year in July, people around the globe gather to celebrate World Listening Day. This year the Tokyo Phonographers Union presents World Listening Day 201: Listening With at OOTE41221 in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture.

Listening with an awareness that all around you are other life-forms simultaneously listening and sensing with you – plant roots, owls, cicadas, voles – mutually intertwined within the web of vibrations which animate and surround our planet.

Since its inception in 2010, dozens of organizations and thousands of people from six continents have participated in World Listening Day. Help us share and grow participation in this annual event please by adding your information to our online form.

July 18th is the birth date of renowned Canadian composer, music educator, and author, R. Murray Schafer. His World Soundscape Project developed the fundamental ideas and practices of acoustic ecology in the 1970s. These inform the current, burgeoning interest in our changing acoustic environment. Thus, World Listening Day honors Schafer’s contribution to understanding our world.

END OF YEAR: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Greetings! I hope this finds you well! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Welcome to the first Noozletter of 2019 (or the last one of 2018, depending on your time zone). As we cross over into the new year, I like to pause and reflect on the one past. It was in many respects a great year, but with a couple of serious bad points that cannot be ignored. The Good The Bad The Ugly

For the good:

Highlight Performances

I enjoyed virtually all of my 2018 gigs, but there are a couple of standouts. The audience rising up and dancing spontaneously to my music in Lima Peru thrilled me to the core. Being able to share the bill with Yasuaki Shimizu at the Barbicon Center in London was a distinct pleasure. Any chance to collaborate with Sankaijuku dancer/choreographer Dai Matsuoka never disappoints. And playing my compositions on a mostly-folk series in a small village in Scotland where the audience had little to no exposure to live experimental computer music yet gave me a rousing ovation and bought all my merchandise, was like a dream come true.

Travel

While still based in Japan I had a number of overseas tours and run-outs. Two tours in Europe, one solo and one with my musical partner Miki Yui as Realistic Monk. It was tremendous fun to visit Peru for the first time – wonderful people, great audiences, and some terrific food. I was able to follow up my first visit to Scotland by a second trip two months later. Both were great fun – and despite any stereotypes, I had a number of excellent meals there.

Media Attention

New releases

  • In June, Unseen Worlds released the follow-up to my 2016 release of archival works. This one is called New Electronic Music from the Eighties and Nineties. As before, I was very happy with the response from both the public and the critics. The first pressing sold out in a matter of weeks, and some of the reviews are quoted in other parts of this letter. I couldn’t be happier working with IUnseen Worlds, and am looking forward to a new release with them in 2019, featuring my recent work from the past couple of years. http://www.unseenworlds.com/releases/electronic-music-from-the-eighties-and-nineties
  • In September, Meakusma released Realm, the first album of REALISTIC MONK, my duo project with Japanese born, German based sound artist Miki Yui. With liner notes from David Toop, this release has proved a hit especially amongst lovers of experimental ambient cinema sonore. https://meakusma.bandcamp.com/album/realm-2

Collaborators

Big thanks to all my wonderful collaborators this past year! It has been so great working with each and every one of you.
Akaihirume, Pearl Alexander, Altered States, Anna Irite, Soo Yeon Lyuh, Dai Matsuoka, Ned Rothenberg, SAEBORG, Yasuaki Shimizu, Aki Takahashi, Ami Yamasaki, Miki Yui – Bless you all!

For the Bad:

Without question the darkest moment in the year was the sudden passing of my longtime friend, critic Jonathan Gold. Not only was he a good friend and great eating partner but always a staunch supporter of my music. He plugged me numerous times in his columns, wrote program notes for my concert at the Getty Center and did the liner notes for my first LP release on Unseen Worlds. But more than that, he was a just a great guy in every sense and his disappearance is a terrible loss for Los Angeles in particular. I was heartened by the tremendous outpouring of love that the city showed after he passed, from changing the lights at City Hall and LAX airport, naming a plaza in front of Grand Central Market, and many other tributes. It is going to be very strange to visit LA next time without him there. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/21/obituaries/jonathan-gold-dead-los-angeles-food-critic.html

 

For the Ugly

What, Donald Trump is still president? Are you kidding??? We really have to do something about that PRONTO.

On the horizon:

A three city tour in Taiwan with Akaihirume in January. Performing in New York and at The Big Ears Festival (Knoxville) in March. Berlin in June. DUBLAB will be hosting a serial presentation of some of my composer interviews originally broadcast on KPFK in the 1980’s, including Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Chen Yi, Toru Takemitsu and more.

Carl Stone December 2017 Noozletter Madeira & Tokyo

Greetings! I hope this finds you well. What, December is around the corner again so soon? It’s scary.

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December,
A magical thing,
And sweet to remember:
“We are nearer to spring
Than we were in September.”
~Oliver Herford, “Hope,” in The Century Magazine, January 1914

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
~Dr. Seuss

This Noozletter is to bring you up to date on my final activities for 2017. What a year it’s been, with performances as far flung as Taiwan, Norway, Madeira, the USA and naturally Japan. And of course there was also that most exciting and unexpected MacArthur fellowship!*

We are looking forward to any chance to see you in 2018, but meanwhile here’s information about what is coming this month. If there is any chance at all that I could meet you at one of these, I would be most glad.

This is an avant garde journey through the world of serious music. The festival lasts four days (December 1-4) and also includes Greg Fox, Maja S.K. Ratkje, Laraaji, Rhy Chatham and the Ectoplasm Girls
